FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HACK
Biggest breach ever: If you’re a federal employee, listen up. Four million of you — both current and former staff — were hacked, presumably by the Chinese government, and had your personal information stolen. Nearly every federal agency was hit. So these hackers just want your information to run up your credit card bill, right? If only that were all. Seems like the Chinese military is compiling a massive database of Americans, for purposes unknown. Makes you just want to get off the grid.
A homicide: Was a Nigerian college student’s death in a Georgia jail cell murder? The death of 21-year-old Matthew Ajibade in a cell New Year’s Day in Savannah was ruled a homicideyesterday by a county coroner, meaning another person was involved in Ajibade’s death. But the coroner stressed that doesn’t automatically mean it’s a murder. Ajibade, jailed on a domestic violence charge, died of “blunt force trauma,” and nine county deputies were fired in connection with his death.
Another day, another scandal: Ireland’s soccer association chief says FIFA paid $5 million in 2009 to keep the Irish from suing over a bad non-call in a World Cup playoff. FIFA admits paying the money but says it was a loan for a new Irish stadium.

Irish soccer officials insist the money was given specifically to quell the drama ensuing from the non-call.
